Publication dateDecember 2009 MBC229 Case Study: Eaves Brook Bridge This case study is part of a specially written series focusing on our local action projects. They are designed to show you how some of our best projects were delivered. Each case study provides background information, examines the original project idea, methodology, funding information, looks at who was involved, and draws out lessons learned from the experience. We hope these case studies will prove useful and inspirational, especially for those delivering similar work. This case study focuses on the Eaves Brook Bridge project in Grange Valley, Preston, Lancashire. This project replaced a vandalised bridge in Grange Valley. A design for the new bridge was developed through involving local schoolchildren in animation workshops.
